Dispersing corexit didn't plug the leak.

BP capped and plugged the well. Corexit was just the company that cleaned up the spill

Corexit is poison.

I did a lot of research into that years ago when it happened.

Also the Berzerk french sub thread had a lot of info on it.

To find inspiration, you must look for it, but, fortunately, it wants to be found.

Corexit was supposed to have a bacteria that consumed carbon.
There was a theory that it mutated or somehow made it onto land and led to people having some kind of flesh eating disease.

I'd bet a lot of money that well is still pumping oil and shit into the gulf.

It's true.

It also affected the wildlife.

I've talked to fishermen that got the lesions from corexit.

Many of them died.

Re: How did Corexit in the Gulf of Mexico stop the oil leak?!?
Corexit is a dispersant, if I recall correctly. It was used to cause the oil to remain at the bottom because BP's fines were to be based on the amount of oil that reached the surface. Under sea pressures at the leak location were high enough, and the escaping oil and surrounding water hot enough, for water to be under supercritical conditions. And as we all know, a supercritical fluid environment is fantastic for performing chemical reactions. I believe Corexit was used under these conditions to chemically bind to the oil to increase it's molecular density, and keep it from rising to the surface.

Corexit binds to the oil and flocculates it to the bottom of the ocean where it is naturally consumed by oil eating microbes over the next few millennium. The GOM floor is a paste of settled oil mat and death.

This black oil mutated and crawled onto land and has joined the swamp in DC in the form of Kamala Harris and Joe BidAn.

Fuck BidAn

No of course not but it dispersed the oil that became the slick on top of the water. They cap the well just like they do on land on blowouts. Much more difficult underwater but still doable. And considering oil is spewing out of the earth and into the ocean daily from natural occurrences, should be a signal that the earth is able to deal with it

It didn't, the corexit just sank the oil.
Out of sight out of mind.

It is a surfactant. It will changes surface tension so oil and water will not separate. Just makes things worse. Disperses this shit so you cannot clean it up.
